Yes, sore throat is a symptom of COVID-19!

A recent report from WHO looked at all the symptoms people experienced when they were sick with COVID-19. About 14% of patients (1 in 7) had a sore throat. 

Sore throats can be caused by lots of things: allergies, the common cold, even dry air. But it could also be a symptom of COVID-19. So if you have a sore throat, stay home, wash your hands, and keep yourself separated from people around you.
